It has opened up a whole new reality for me and i need to share it.
Goldstein's most significant contribution to the plot of the novel is as alleged author of the book The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism. The book contains the truth of the Party as well as a model for how to overthrow them, as is quoted at length in Book Two: Chapter IX of 1984.
to keep this post concise i will (over) simplify it.
there are 3 factions in human society, upper 1%, middle 14% and lower (proles) 85%
upper and middle constantly fight to become/stay upper and use the 85% to become the upper.
THE ADVENT OF ADVANCED MACHINERY HAS MADE IT SO THAT MOST OF THE WORLD IS IN SURPLUS.
humans are needed less and less as machine become more and more sophisticated.
THEY CANNOT USE THE SURPLS TO RAISE THE 85% (LOWER PROLES) OUT OF POVERTY, BECAUSE THERE IS A DIRECT CAUSATION BETWEEN POVERTY AND INTELLIGENCE. ie the proles must be kept in subsistence or they will start to ask questions and rebel destroying the whole of the status quo.
6 they need to expend the surplus in various ways that waste the surplus (wars, building unnecessary shit, (or perhaps the ruinous covid bollocks))
entertain my theory before dismissing it...
look inside factories and see the daily output. i will provide some links. the new tech is hidden but look at the old tech

consider THIS speech in the matrix, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD4nhYR-VRA
we are at the point now where an AI can design a machine better than a human. i think those machines are designing other better machines way beyond our capability. (we already know this i think).
This is maybe a good thing. potentially we could all be working a 4 hour week. but the problem remains that humans with nothing to do will become problematic.
all poverty in the world is unnecessary in fact it is manufactured. the money wasted each day could easily pay for comfort and security for all.
but like in the matrix 1. we couldn't handle that as a species. it would all fail. but understanding this will help those who can think to be free. (Just don't tell too many people) ;)
